Back from the City of Angels-Freddie Ljungberg situation still unclear

I asked if there was any update on Freddie’s condition today on my way back to Seattle — had time with stop in San Jose — and didn’t learn much.
But I will share with you what I found out: Ljungberg has yet to see team doctors but will early this week, and is feeling better. Not likely to get an update from the team until Tuesday.
That’s what I know for the time being.
Watching replay of Houston-RSL — apparently there are makeup calls in Major League Soccer. Ref red-carded Hainault for Dynamo, then didn’t call a penalty when Findley was taken down in the penalty area for RSL, and then red-carded Mathis for his reaction to the no-call.
I would imagine, then, that Seattle isn’t the only place in the league where fans have questioned the league’s officiating. I’m not saying the calls in the Houston-RSL game weren’t warranted, but they were debatable.
